Christmas Lights Switch On 2023
Our Christmas Light Switch On event took place on Saturday, November 18th, 2023 at the Cults Kirk Hub. Thanks for coming along and making the event a great success. The little ones enjoyed meeting Santa and the Highland Alpacas. Thank you goes to the Aberdeen Chorus of Sweet Adelines for their delightful singing and thanks to all our sponsors and stall holders. The event raised over £1,300 to keep the lights twinkling for another season.

Aberdeen City Council Don't Fund The CBMCC Christmas Lights
Your Community Council secured funding for these lights from the generosity of our local businesses and residents. Although the CBM Community Council own the lights, we have to pay annually for storage, maintenance, insurance, repairs, installation and removal. We fundraise all year round and especially at Christmas time, to help secure the future of Cults Bieldside Milltimber Christmas lights.
If you enjoy the Christmas Lights please consider making a donation using the Donate Now button above.
History of the Christmas Lights
During 2016, Community Councillor Lindsay Davidson embarked on an ambitious Christmas Lights Project with the aim of introducing new festive lighting into our community. Cults, Milltimber and Bieldside had no Christmas lights and no budget for this project, so Lindsay reached out to prominent local businesses and community stakeholders for sponsorship and was truly delighted to obtain sufficient sponsorship to fund our feature lights. These were mounted all along the North Deeside Road within our community and really brighten up the season for us all. In total there are 48 Christmas Lights but, due to works being done in 2020, 3 are not available to be mounted. Hopefully everything will be back in order this year and do get in touch if you'd like to help contribute to the future of the Christmas Lights.
